It’s been a great phone, but I feel like we’ve had our time together. It’s time to move on. So I wen’t and picked up a Samsung Gio (GT-S5660 to be precise) for $100. After rooting/unlocking and installing ClockWorkMod Recovery, I was able to get an Android 4.2.1 (jellybean) rom running on it smooth and stable. So far I’m quite pleased for $100, but we’ll see how it holds up to my life…
Made a few changes to Exposed. Added customizable VNC port via settings plist (requested by @jamie_shaw). Also gave it the ability to check and update the settings plist if necessary so that when a new version is released, it will update the plist to work with the new version rather than crash. Have fun!
Got the screen, tore the phone open, took the old screen out (which broke as I was removing it), and started to install the new screen, but alas the new screen’s ribbon tore as I was putting it in. So I decided to probably do what any normal person would do and buy a new phone. In the mean time, I reassembled the phone and started on an epic quest to firstly get ADB running (cause apparently I had it disabled for some reason) and install a VNC server. Read more
Exposed that includes: Compatibility fixes for iOS 6, Updated libvncserver to 0.9.9 which has all sorts of speed improvements as well as enables Apple’s builtin Screen Sharing application to finally work, and finally, I added a default password for liability reasons. Default password on new installations will be “exposed”. Super secret, I know. The source code has also been updated on my github. Enjoy!
Was talking to @nitoTV trying to remember the good ol’ Apple TV 1G days for his talk at Jailbreakcon. He mentioned that he wanted some of my old pictures and posts so I “up’d” a backup copy of my old site onto my host. Figure I may as well leave it up for nostalgic reasons. You can take the trip down memory lane by pointing your browsers to http://legacy.brandon-holland.com.
Just released a new version of IRKeyboardEmu. No major changes, just compatibility fixes. Also managed to get the latest source code uploaded to Github. That is all.
Exposed that includes compatibility fixes for 5.0+ as well as merged in some long due fixes provided by @nitoTV so don’t forget to show him some love. Also from the source code side of things, I added a project build script that copies the bundle bin to a dylib and plist making it easier to test builds. Happy Easter!
Good News Everyone! If you are seeing this message, it means that I finally got my butt in gear and finished my new and improved WordPress powered website! It has been in the oven for over a year now. What was wrong with the old version you say? I’m glad you asked. Read more
